Photos: Race prep at Ben Venue

About 20 members of the Old Dominion Hounds split up into two groups last Sunday to prepare for riders and horses in the pairs and Point-to-Point races at Ben Venue Farm, which are Saturday, April 9 (steeplechase) and Sunday, April 10 (pairs). In the photo at left, Tim Colgan saws logs for a pairs trail fence. On the right, Sarah Crocker finds a vine way to relax as she and Michele Sargent (right) leave the woods where they’ve been working. For more about the Old Dominion Hounds Point-to-Point race, see publisher Walter Nicklin’s editorial this week, or click on Event Calendar above and go to April 9.
